I’ll make this short, because I’m working at the moment, and because it’s Sonia’s birthday and this blog shouldn’t be too cluttered on her day.
The finale was terrific, and I liked the season as a whole. I’m not sure which season was the best, but this was a good one. There have been some great season finales … I’m partial to the restaurant opening with the Tourette’s chef, but the final scene of Season 6 is also classic:
I love that they have managed to find a way to keep Leon around. His character, and the way J.B. Smoove plays him, is comedy gold, as I have said more than once.
Mostly, I’m fascinated by the question of why, when I don’t have the patience to stick with even the best sitcoms, when I don’t seem to understand modern film comedy, why do I still love Curb Your Enthusiasm? As far as I am concerned, they are nowhere near the legendary shark, and if Larry David wants to do it, I most definitely will be there for another season. Meanwhile, give Leon his own show!
Grade for finale: A. Grade for season: B+.
